if you asked me to choose a favorite autumn activity, i probably shout "APPLE PICKING" in your face at an unreasonably loud volume. sorry about that. it's just that i seriously love apple picking! the activity in itself screams fall, and it's been a tradition in my family for years. two saturdays ago, we piled in the car and headed to our favorite spot - honey hill. (sorry in advance for the overload of pictures! they were just too good!)

before we got picking, we grabbed some warm apple cider and donuts. the. freakin'. best. can someone please tell me if they know of anything better than those apple cider donuts? because i'm coming up blank ;)

while we waited for the tractors to take us out to the trees, we said hello to the animals they had in the petting zoo. the sun flare that got captured with that little guy ^^ is magic!

after filling our bags to the brim with the best-looking apples we could find (aka honeycrisp - THE best kind out there), we headed over to the pumpkin and raspberry patches to pick some of each.

they had a ton of uniquely colored pumpkins this year! that little orange and white striped number? so good! they also had a ton of those blush pink ones that are all over instagram these days. pink is the new white, people!

sibs poppin' their best pumpkin poses ^^

like i mentioned earlier, apple picking is a huge fall tradition in my family! my sister and i took the same photos against the same wall to years ago! i'm even wearing the same coat lol! (read the whole post here) it's so funny to see how much we've changed, yet stayed the same... if you get what i'm saying!

before we left, we stopped into the bakery and bought a dozen more donuts. #sorrynotsorry they're just too good! until next year, honey hill! i look forward to you every year, and each is better than the last. happy fall, friends!
